hello renchigeorge,
just get the latest blood sugar level report, both fasting and post prandial. get B.P checked and ask about other history to rule out any heart problem, thyroid, any operation in past and other histories.
you get a complete blood picture done before undergoing extraction to rule out any bleeding disorders.

Take an IOPA before extraction .You can put on simple antibiotics and pain killer for 3 days if the tooth is infectious. otherwise if you are extracting for the sake of denture preparation, then pain killers will only work.

General Surgeon Dr. Swapnendu Sekhar Ghosh's  Response
Hello doctor ,
Thank you for the question.Since the person had jaundice ,it will be good to have liver function tests done and see the results for its normalcy .type jaundice the person suffered should be determined for safety point of view .
medical check up should be done to detect any condition like hypertension,diabetes etc .these condition if present should be controlled first .routine investigations like HB/B T /C T /BLOOD SUGAR/BLOOD UREA/SERUM CREATININ should be done.
oral hygiene should be checked.
hope your patient be all right with your treatment .
